Hannah & Steve’s Engagement Shoot, Ashridge

I am photographing Hannah & Steve’s wedding this November at Latimer House and our engagement shoot was a great chance to meet them and get to know them a little more.  The day of their shoot was their five year anniversary which made it more cute.  They decided not to bring their year old doberman along , Apollo – I can only say was slightly relieved when found out he is very bouncy and enthusiastic (ha ha)  Anyway this lovely couple were a joy to shoot – very natural, we even incorporated them drinking with their coffee cups and going for a walk which is apparently what they do a lot. Steve’s not the biggest fan of dressing up so he opted for fluorescent shoes and shorts – thanks Steve (just kidding) but everything about this couple meant I knew this shoot would be easy to reflect their fun personalities.  They are really a couple of softies very much in love and looking forward to their wedding day.  Here’s just a few of their engagement shoot photos to share….
